Hope Stamps Eternal Cupcake Inspiration #14


It's time for another Cupcake Inspiration Challenge from Hope Stamps Eternal, and Rachel has picked these adorable penguin cupckakes shown here to inspire you! Aren't they the cutest??? Way too cute to eat, that's for sure! Since the cupcakes have a little bit of a beach'y/Hawaiian-theme to them, I decided to use my Memory Box penguin with her little floatie for my card, and tried to stay with the pastel colors in the cupcakes. I was wishing I had more patience for waiting for things to dry, as I would have applied some Glossy Effects to the inner tube. Maybe I'll still do that... chances are though I'll mess it up since the card is completely done!

This particular penguin stamp isn't available, but several other Memory Box stamps and products are available at the Hope Stamps Eternal store, so stop by soon to see what Rachel has in stock! (NEW Basic Grey papers are available, too... just FYI!)
And finally, here is Kelsey's completed Prayer Journal! If you caught my blog post over the weekend, you saw the Prayer Journals that I made for my daughter and her friend before they left on a mission trip this past Sunday. (We heard from Kaylie last evening, and she had a great day with the family they're helping, getting to know them and helping to re-do their bathroom! Thanks everyone for your prayers!) Kelsey had asked me if she could have a Journal too, so she picked out these great papers from American Crafts, and even picked out the ribbon for her journal. I again used my Bind-It-All to put it all together, and the recycled white coil!
I put a pocket page on the inside of her journal too, and she is pretty pleased with the final result!
Thank you for visiting my blog today!
